the science of love, and the future of women

i've been introduced to anthroplogist helen fisher thru a guest post at skepchick by laura davis by laura without labels. laura shares an excellent review of helen's new book, "Why We Love: The Nature and Chemistry of Romantic Love," which i now want to read.

here is helen fisher giving a talk at TED in 2006. i find her 20 minute video to be an inspiring and charming discussion on the ways we romantically love, especially the second half.

I heard a whole interview/feature on Helen Fisher on NPR (the source of practically every bit of knowledge I have...) and it was just fantastic. I am really mesmerized with the science (and philosophy, I guess) of the boundaries and interaction of neuroscience, the brain, the mind, etc and she was really great.
